For the second time in Coastal Carolina University history, Students Advocating Gender Equality (SAGE) hosted a Sex Toy Bingo event in the Coastal Theater in the Lib Jackson Student Union.


110 people were in attendance and raised $430 in admissions, according to SAGE. Attendees paid $3 per board, a slight increase from $1 at the first Sex Toy Bingo last semester.


The October Sex Toy Bingo event flyer, advertised on the organization’s Instagram, caught the eye of Badd Kitty, a sexual health and wellness store located in Myrtle Beach. In partnership with the event, Badd Kitty donated approximately $430 in prizes.


The donations were used as prize baskets, with the main prize from Badd Kitty valued at $280, and the second largest at $210. The basket held items such as vibrators, lube, condoms and many other items. The club intended to bring fun to campus, all while talking about sex education and recruiting SAGE members.


The event was meant to last from 6 to 8:30 p.m. However, with the speed of the rounds, it ended an hour earlier. With the success of their previous Sex Toy Bingo, SAGE moved the event to a larger space than the previous Alford Ballroom.


The event consisted of two regular bingo rounds for the first two prizes, followed by an X-shape, and then concluded with a blackout for the final and largest prize.


SAGE President and junior history major Iszabella Hrivnak said the club is all about advocating for inclusion, education on gender equality and sexual health.


Paige Burns, freshman biology major and Sex Toy Bingo participant, didn’t get to yell “bingo,” but said the club and event are full of good and diverse individuals.


“[The event is] a good opportunity since there are not a lot of events like this around to spread sex positivity,” Burns said.


Hrivank and SAGE will continue the event next year and hold one event per year instead of once every semester.
